The Knickerbocker Historical Society
The Knickerbocker Historical Society (KHS) is a non-profit organization which is dedicated to restoring the Knickerbocker Mansion and educating the public about the historical, cultural, and literary impact of the Knickerbocker Family.
The Mansion, constructed by Johannes Knickerbacker III in Schaghticoke, New York (circa 1780), has been almost completely restored from a semi ruin to its former grandeur by the KHS.
The KHS, staffed entirely by volunteers, provides seasonal tours and educational programs to the public and hosts a bi-annual Knickerbocker Family Reunion and several annual special events at the Mansion throughout the year.
Funds raised by the KHS are used toward the restoration of the Mansion, maintenance of the Knickerbocker Family Cemetery, and production of educational programs.
The KHS also provides free genealogical and historical information about the Knickerbocker Family and the history of Old Schaghticoke.
